    Dear TEMPO Madison members:

    It's hard to believe fall is upon us with the cooler weather, but look around and you will discover the colorful autumn leaves, the morning sun rising a bit later, birds set to migrate south for winter, and the harvesting of apples and pumpkins! As the season changes, I hope you have found time to enjoy some of your fall favorites whether it is going for a run on a crisp morning, drinking a pumpkin-flavored beverage, or watching your favorite sport with family and friends. Fall is not only a time to delight in your seasonal activities, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and TEMPO Madison recognizes those affected by breast cancer and the benefits of early detection, education, and support.

    Cancer has likely touched your life in some way or another, making it important that we continue to fight for measures to protect our loved ones and ourselves from this disease. Giuliana Rancic, a breast cancer survivor, stated: "A lot of us think we're invincible...but we have to start putting ourselves on the to-do list." In order to care for others, we must first care for ourselves. The month of October is a reminder to check-in on your health. 

    TEMPO Madison cares for your wellbeing and safety. The diagnosis of breast cancer, especially amid the backdrop of a global pandemic, can be stressful. We know it takes a village of warriors to fight against this disease and we are standing strong together on this fight. 

    For this month, we plan to sell a special edition of TEMPO Madison shirts with the breast cancer bow attached to our logo. We will donate 10% of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Recovery in the Madison region. For more information on this organization, please go to bcrecovery.org

    In closing, we invite you to share your story as a breast cancer survivor in the October mid-month newsletter. Your journey will inspire and encourage others affected by this disease. 

    Don't forget to add taking care of yourself to the "to-do" list. 

    Sincerely, 

    Leslie M. Petty

    TEMPO Madison President

    TEMPO Madison is profoundly devastated and outraged at the racist murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery.  We join our community in mourning their loss and condemning the horrendous circumstances of their brutal and senseless deaths.  We also recognize that the violence directed toward these individuals is not a new phenomenon, but reflective of the systemic racism and aggression that exists in our country and our communities, despite our efforts to eradicate both.  Equity, diversity, and inclusion have always been core values of TEMPO Madison.  As influential women of diverse backgrounds, we each have our own different experiences with racism and violence.  The events of the last few days have made us painfully aware of the work that needs to be done so as to allow each of us and our families, friends, and colleagues to exist in a world that, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., has said judges us, not by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character.   TEMPO Madison recognizes and appreciates the work that many of our members have done and will do in the coming months to help individuals cope after these traumatic events, to address racial injustice and violence, and to develop strategies to improve the world for all members of our community.  In the near future, TEMPO Madison, as an organization, will look for opportunities to participate in the discussions and actions necessary to help our community heal and to make real change.  If you are aware of a way for us to be of assistance or support, please reach out to the members of the TEMPO Madison Board of Directors. 

    Sincerely, 

    The TEMPO Madison Executive Committee 

    Shana Lewis, President

    Leslie Petty, Vice President

    Elaine Rich, Treasurer
